We have recently upgraded the way news is viewed and posted on www.fbyc.net. The new technology eliminates the need for the news poster to be familiar with html, plus it includes new search capability, and the requisite “Like” and “Tweet” links for Facebook and Twitter.
The downside of the upgrade is it resides on a different server, and requires a different set of login credentials. On the "posting of news articles" part of the web site the www is replaced by new so the site is http://new.fbyc.net/news/
And you must login to the new server in order to post a news article. Most of you are familiar with logging in to the current site, and on the red navigation bar you will see your name in the top left corner, and links to Members, Board, Event Mgr or whatever on the top right. When you click on News – the third link on the blue navigation line, you will notice the top red line changes completely. Your name disappears from the top left, and you are offered a LogIn on the top right. Both screen shots are pictured nearby.
Fortunately, we were able to transfer all credentials, your username and password, to the new site. So if you go to the news site, if you know your username and password, simply enter it in the LogIn on the top right. If you tell the browser to remember your password, it will do a good job with that.
HOW TO TELL THE TWO SITES APART?
To make it easy to differentiate which site you are on, we have left the logins for the old site on the top left end of the red bar.

We have set the logins for the new news site on the top right end of the red bar.

Both Forgot Password links work – but a word of caution!! Forgot Password on the old site – top left, will email you your username and password. Forgot Password on the new site top right will email you your username, but will require you to reset your password. And it encrypts passwords so we can’t tell you what your password is, once you reset it.
